Scott Klasen, CSCS
Scott is a wellness coach and personal trainer who began his career at the Lincolnshire Tennis & Fitness Club in 2003 after completing his Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology at Illinois State University. Prior to that, Scott was a four-year scholarship athlete on ISU’s cross-country and track teams while earning his Bachelor’s degree in Health Education.
While at the Lincolnshire Club Scott coached high school and college-aged athletes in virtually every sport, tennis in particular. He also had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of personal training clients and taught group fitness classes. In 2005, Scott started a side business of training clients out of their homes, something he still enjoys today. In April of 2007 he joined forces with a colleague and formed Peak Performance Training, specializing in sports performance training, particularly tennis, where they ran junior strength and conditioning programs at area clubs.
In 2008, Scott left the Lincolnshire Club to focus on and grow Peak Performance Training full-time until the formation of his latest venture – Scott Klasen Fitness & Wellness, which specializes in in-home, as well as remote-based, personal training and wellness coaching.
Scott is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA). Most recently, Scott completed his Precision Nutrition Level 1 and Level 2 Certification, which along with the CSCS form the two premier credentials in the industry.
Throughout his nearly two decades in the industry, Scott has worked with a wide range of clients, from youth athletes to adults with sport performance-related goals, stay-at-home moms to company executives looking for balance in their health, and middle-aged adults to senior citizens searching for proper wellness. His experience, expertise and enthusiasm will help his patients at HealthFit identify and achieve their desired age and life-stage related health, fitness, and wellness goals.
Scott realizes that everyone is different and so, too, is their body. Accordingly, his wellness coaching programs are fully tailored to suit his clients’ unique needs. No matter who you are or what you do, he will work with you to develop a plan to get you to reach your ultimate health and wellness goals in a safe and fun way. He wakes up every morning passionate and excited to live his mission of “helping empower people to live their happiest and healthiest life possible so they can thrive at whatever they do best.”
Outside of his professional life, Scott enjoys traveling to new places and being physically active while away, hiking in particular. He also enjoys cooking, wine, reading non-fiction, watching good TV, and relaxing and spending time with his wife, Stacy, and their two dogs.
